1170s are 30% faster than a 1080Ti and uses less power.
10 series were about the same interval boost over the 9's.
7 series we will pretend we never met those.
- Reason for launch delay: They were overloaded with parts from OEMs and needed to sell them all.
- Hot Chips event in Aug - seems to be likely for release
Strategy for getting card on release day?
- Ref cards suck - FE suck - loud - bad cooling - at least last 2 gen
- Wait for vendor cards
- We are thinking we probably need a ref card for the lab to get a jump on the dev.
- Expected price? ~$500-800
